Dorset Echo: Dentures found in shoes at charity store Dentures found in shoes at charity store

THE hunt is on for the owner of a set of false teeth discovered in a shoe at a Weymouth charity shop.

Volunteers at Sue Ryder store in Littlemoor made the unusual discovery while sorting through donated clothing last week.

Andrea Gibbs, shop manager, said: “The very personal item was secreted in a pair of shoes and concern mounts that the owner may require them if feeling peckish and has an allergy to porridge or soup.

“Verification will only be allowed once we know that they belong to you.

“We will operate a similar situation to the Prince and Cinderella regarding their perfect fit.”

She added: “We are, as ever, truly grateful to the wonderful people who live locally for their support .

“Their generous donations mean that we can offer incredible care.”

My mate Jeff has got some new shoes and his dentures are always out of control. No second thought, he's too posh to go to Littlemoor.

Most charity shops now require you have a card that allows them to claim tax, the number assigned to you will clearly trace you, that's how we get letters stating how much money has been donated with your donated items. So why not trace the owner via the number ?????????????

They're mine.
I had a bad case of foot'n mouth disease and i accidentally left them behind.
I won't be able to collect them until next week, when I get my new shoes, so if anyone needs a chew you are welcome to borrow them until then.

The owner is possibly a deceased person whose clothes etc have been taken to the shop. Just throw them away.

Reminds me of the time I left a set in a thrift store in Lyme Regis, back in the 1990s. I wrote out a neat label with £5 inscribed upon it, stuck it on the upper arch, placed them in a saucer from the store and left them in the middle of the window display. Don't know how many inquiries they may have had - nor even whether the jape made the pages of the Ohec....
